    Many to choose from; what's your fave?

    If the commercial brands aren't up to snuff, might you have a recipe?

    I use KC Masterpiece's Classic Blend as a base, and then add all sorts of things, depending on what I'm putting it on.

    Some of the things I may add are:


    seasoned salt
    fresh pepper
    cayenne pepper
    chili powder
    sesame oil
    soy sauce
    minced garlic
    raspberry syrup (sugar free)
    hoisin sauce

    and/or whatever else I'm in the mood for. :)

    But KC Masterpiece is the best widely available commercial sauce IMO. I use Classic Blend because it doesn't have corn syrup or sugar, which I tend to limit in my every day cooking.

    "Barbeque sauce" is for masking failed barbeque. Good BBQ doesn't need no stinkin' sauce! :p

    Meat, fat, 125F, smoke, time.

    I would agree in some cases but some styles of barbecue work better with a decent, non-overpowering sauce. This is particularly true of Kansas City style BBQ'd meats. :)

    Hoisin sauce mixed with chili sauce (preferrably just a jar of crushed red chilis.....very useful), and maybe some tomato paste. Awesome.

    Store bought - "Sweet baby Rays"

    Home made, Ketchup, sugar, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, onion, olive oil, dash of chili powder, squirt of yellow mustard.

    I prefer a sweet sauce.

    Heinz BBQ Sauce. But not for BBQ food, the charcoal gives it the flavour. But more for everyday better-than-ketchup stuff to put on chips and bacon butties.

    Famous Dave's "Devil's Spit." Even better if you throw in a little bit of Sam Adams to mellow the taste down a little.

    I'm quite partial to a brand we have in Australia called Berenberg. Their BBQ is delicious (I'm actually quite partial to all their condiments).

    I truly never considered adding beer to the sauce. I usually chased the barbecue with the beer. Genius.

    I usually prefer one of the Jack Daniels sauces, they go pretty well with anything and aren't spicy.

    it's pretty new on the market but reggae reggae sauce is really nice on chicken.

    cook the chicken in the oven first then cover in the sauce and pop on BBQ. FANTASTIC!!!!

    I agree with Sweet Baby Ray's. I had some at the Taste of Chicago which I also recommend going to :)
